These are great year round. In the winter I wear them over a light sweater and they are very cozy.
Gorgeous handmade and embroidered skirts from the Rabari tribe of Northern India. Very fine and expertly embroidered with cotton embroidery floss. Each of them has been made with such love and attention, representing weeks of work. The price does not reflect the value of these in my opinion.
These are from a tribe in Gujarat, India where the most festive and beautiful embroidery comes from.
The waist is adjustable with a drawstring with a maximum measurement of 34". Length is 34 inches. All cotton. For more great Banjara and Rabari skirts check out the skirt section of the shop!
